Re: NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 25

Really looking forward to this tournament. I can easily see Hiromu Takahashi winning the BOSJ and facing whoever the Junior Heavyweight Champion is at Dominion.



All Time Favourites:
Kazuchika Okada, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Eddie Guerrero, Toshiaki Kawada, Daniel Bryan, Kensuke Sasaki & Shinya Hashimoto

I write things sometimes. Always Wrestling related, obviously.

I simultaneously want to see and don't want to see Hirmou face Ospreay again. Not because they won't have another incredible match (they would) but both will likely shorten their lifespan (again).
SolarKhan and Death Rider like this.

Re: NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 25

Finals being in Korakuen is an odd choice because there's gonna be far less people there than where they'd normally run for a tournament final, BUT, crowd reaction may be better so I'll take it.

Pretty sure we'll see Flip Gordon in this as a new face.

Re: NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 25

Feels like they are making this tour a bit smaller by having finals at Korakuen.

Re: NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 25

Korakuen Hall is much cheaper so it doesn't surprise me that the finals are being held last.

Please no Flip Gordon.

Re: NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 25

I'd take BUSHI (W) facing Ospreay at Dominion. Won't happen of course but it just adds something else. Granted Ospreay doesn't drop it in April.

Re: NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 25

Wouldn't mind seeing Marty Scurll win so that we get Ospreay vs Scurll 2 at Dominion.

Takahashi is another good call as well as Flip Gordon being included but hopefully he doesn't win.

Re: NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 25

Will Ospreay pushed for Robbie Eagles (Australian wrestler, current PWA Heavyweight Champion) to take part in this tournament, and mentioned in this promo that Meltzer is actually a big fan of Eagles. Don't know if that counts for anything, but I would love to see him involved, I've been watching him for the past 4 years and I strongly believe he's the best wrestler Australia's got. He was involved in the NJPW tour and got to look really good against EVIL and SANADA.
